, a story about an unlikely relationship between a monkey and a cat. a female baboon at a zoo in israel recently became the adoptive mother of a stray kitten. the kitten somehow wandered into the baboon's cage, and the animals have been living together ever since. they seem to get on well. video footage shows the baboon embracing and grooming the kitten and pulling it back when it tries to leave. in fact, she rarely lets it out of her sight. but the relationship comes at a cost. the baboon often steals the kitten's food. zoo officials say if she continues to do so, they will have no choice but to separate the two friends. >>> we'll be back with more updates in 30 minutes. i'm gene otani in tokyo. from all of us here at nhk world, thanks very much for joining us. have a great day wherever you are.
